Originally posted by joebbadass: It appears with all of his public statements, Lombardi talked himself out of the job. It is also likely he wanted more than Jed was willing to give. Baalke seems capable. We shall see.
If they are giving Harbaugh some personnel control it makes sense to not have "too many cooks in the kitchen." Get two young football minds in there and see what they can do. IF they get Harbaugh I like it. If not... I'll have my doubts as to wtf Jed has been doing.
It's not young that bothers me, it's the inexperienced part, coupled with the fact that Jed is still new to the business. I would have liked for Lombardi to have taken *any* position with the team, just to give us another opinion/sounding board. But if Harbaugh signs on, I'll feel a lot better about Baalke's promotion.
That's exactly how I feel. Get Harbaugh and it's all good. Get it done, Jed.
If they can't get Harbaugh, this board will SELF-DESTRUCT
I think their TV ratings would plummet too. At this point, Jed should conduct the Harbaugh interview as such, "How much do you want? No, seriously. Name your price and let's sign this thing already."
